    Here's the thing, I have an app with folders of files (PDFs, music, pics) that totals over 4gb. There are several dozen of folders, each with subfolders. The app has no iCloud support, nor any way to extract all the data in the format of files and folders (the only way to extract from iTunes is by placing the files in the 'public folder' within the app. Today I got the iPad mini, and set it up as a new iPad. The only thing I want from my other iPad transferred over is that app with its data. Does anyone know of a way to transfer that data between the iPads? (Non jail broken iPads)

    If the name of the app is relevant, it's 'Documents' by olive toast

    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    The fastest way would be to simply backup the current iPad, do a restore to the mini and delete what you don't need. Because without iCloud support or the ability to move your files thru iTunes easily, I can't think of a better way, off the top of my head, to accomplish your goal.
    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    Yeah I was trying to avoid that, but if its my only option then that's what I'll do. Thanks

    Ok, so this is helpful, and it avoids the need to backup and restore. Using iexplorer, one can copy and paste app data. I tested it an it seems to work fine!
    Thanks all for your help!
